, and even in the european countries, especially the uk, they have a one-payer system, but what happened is that one-payer system has caused long lines, health care is delayed getting to people, and the end result, the private sector that actually is formed. we as an organization are a big believer that the integration of care into a more -- a simpler mod'll it's under one roof or enabled in a society that can access care at single point and then be able to use it across the platform as a whole. we're not a big believer in a governmental sponsored only plan because it does not encourage innovation and does not encourage competitive aspects, and we think the competitive aspects will only make us better going forward. >> bruce, question slightly off the topic. being a texas a&m guy, what do you think of johnny manziel ask do you think can win the heisman? >> i have to tell you, the school is making me proud. the year i have been associated with texas a&m, i've never seen a better football team and i think he will win. a little off topic. >> mr. broussard, i want to comment and give you som
, canada and the u.k. they tend to be only about 15 -- 10-15% money comes from the private sector in terms of equity, that is. and it really is because the costs of capital for that equity is definitely based on precedent deal north of 10% cost of capital. so usually for projects such as this they would start with any potential grant money available first, then maybe any potential subsidized or low-cost loans and eventually figure out how much more additional capital would be needed and could the private sector be able to come up with that amount. and, again, given the size of the total project, um, i think we haven't had the ability to say if that's f the that's -- if there's enough capital to do that, but in segments and given the general interest in rail, i believe that if structured appropriately, there should be a way to do this. >> but you do say 10-15% of the total project cost. >> right. >> provided capital. where does the rest come from? >> that's right. if you look at a lot of the projects, for example, some of the toll road projects that were built in florida, a lot of it comes
%. what we saw was the recession expanding. spain, italy, the uk, all found austerity taking its toll even more as unemployment continued to rise in some of those countries. even the large country, the economic powerhouse germany found its slelf slowing down. the root cause of it all was the inability of the european governments to come to policies to get growth started again. towards the middle and end of the year they did, but the tale was style there. very much austerity again and again. perhaps if there was only one change that took place as we moved into the fall and into the winter. it was the realization that most of these countries could take no more austerity. social welfare having been cut, health care cut, unemployment, growth virtually nonexistent. now the talk is not of more austerity, but how to get growth started again across the contine continent. suzanne. >> thank you, richard. >>> christmas, of course, is a time of giving, but there are many struggling families in boston that couldn't aafford to get their children he anything. this year for almost six decades help kamt no

europe and people in the u.k. and throughout the world. my hope is we are going to get the deal done. >> we have three weeks or so to play with at least this year some say. is that feasible knowing what you know? >> i think what you have to realize is there has to be a down payment. president outlined what he wants for that down payment on revenue side. let's have rates go back up which was the underlying assumption that was included in the whole simpson-bowles plan. the gang of six plan embraced that as well. brought the rates back up to 39%. you could still do tax reform after that to bring them back down and eliminate the tax expenditures. that's a good starting point. will we fully get through tax reform and entitlement reform by the end of the year? obviously not. what i fear is let's not continue to negotiate this into the 11th hour. every day that we go on during this period, during retail season, you hold back consumers which we know consumer confidence is two-thirds of the economy. folks are not buying stuff because they don't know what will happen come the beginning of the
